TOP 500 REVIEWERon 23 March 2018
There are many excellent individual recordings of Schubert symphonies available, but for a set by a single conductor and orchestra - and in a neat, slim box as a bonus - this is my number one choice. Claudio Abbado was a natural Schubertian, with a real feel for the music. He conducts the Chamber Orchestra of Europe with confidence and elan to produce a big yet spritely sound that does full justice to the sparkling, life-affirming essence of Schubert's symphonies.

This would work well as your only version of these magnificent, upliting works, or as an addition to any other versions you may have.

Quite simply looking to extend my listening of this composer - and not disappointed. Not "musical" in terms of knowledge experience or playing so can't really give you a "critique" as such, but recommend this to anyone who just likes listening to good (very) music.

Bought CD for wifes present.When opened on her birthday we found that there were only 4 C.Ds in box not 5 as stated on box. C.D 1 was missing.
As present was opened after the 30 day period we are stuffed on replacement.
Not Happy and will look at HMV in future.
